The Fight for Energy Democracy

March 29th, 2016 7:00 PM
Brooklyn For Peace
The Fight for Energy Democracy
New York State and Beyond
Kim Fraczek of Sane Energy Project, and a Montrose 9 resister

Fracking has been banned in New York State, there is a glut of oil and gas on the market, and the 

price of fossil fuels has collapsed – yet Big Energy is building more pipelines, compressor 

stations, storage facilities, and waste sites than ever before. With the active connivance of 

government, the oil and gas corporations are leveling forests, seizing farmland, and threatening 

our water supply, binding us to an energy system that will ultimately kill us. But there is 

resistance – a growing convergence of workers, farmers, and ordinary people fighting to protect 

their families and the planet. 

Come to learn and hear from activists on the front lines of this struggle, and how you can help 

build the growing resistance.
